The information is provided by Coffin Law Office and while we endeavor to keep the information up to date and correct, we make no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability with respect to the website or the information, products, services, or related graphics contained on the website for any purpose.

PERSONAL INFORMATION MANAGEMENT
The Coffin Law Office website (www.coffinlaw.ca) provides individuals with the opportunity to voluntarily supply limited amounts of personal information (such as name, phone number or postal or e-mail address). Personal information is collected by Coffin Law Office if you send us an email or complete and submit an online form. Any data you provide about any third parties may have to be disclosed, where we’ve acted for them in the past.
The information you provide is only used to respond to your questions, or to provide what legal information you have requested, that can be forwarded electronically. Any information given will only be used for the specific purpose for which it was collected. This will not be released to any third parties, and it will be maintained on a secure server.
AUTOMATIC COLLECTION OF NON-IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
We will also collect non-identifiable information, based on your web browsing. When you browse our website, read pages, or download information, a limited amount of non-identifiable information about your visit will automatically be collected. This information indicates a person’s activity on the site, but we will not know the identification of the person. This data allows us to better understand clients’ needs and interests.
PRIVACY & LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
We communicate with you regarding our services, publications and events in various ways, including by email. If you received an email from us, your email address is either listed with us as someone who has expressly shared this address for the purpose of receiving information in the future or you have an existing relationship with us. We respect your time and want to ensure we only send information to you that you will find valuable. We will always permit you to unsubscribe or opt-out of receiving these emails.
We collect statistics about how you use our email communication to better tailor the information we provide to your needs. These statistics include when you open our emails, forward them, click through links, and download files. If you use a link in an email from us that directs you to a page on our website, we will be able to associate your email address with that specific visit to our website.
EMAIL AND WAIVER OF CONFIDENTIALITY
Email is an inherently vulnerable form of communication. When information is transmitted by email, it is broken into packets of data that flow between servers over the internet. Technologies exist that allow interested individuals to sort through packets of information transmitted by email without your consent.
While Coffin Law Office will make commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the security and confidentiality of information transmitted by email, you waive your expectation of confidentiality on any and all information transmitted between you, Coffin Law Office and any person or entity delivering services for or on behalf of Coffin Law Office.
CONSENT AND OPTING OUT
If you provide us with your personal information for the purposes of receiving emails, opening a file or receiving legal services, you have “opted-in” to our communications and accepted the terms of this Policy.
If we send you an announcement, invitation, message or service-related email and you do not “opt-out” of receiving emails or the specific type of communication, including commercial electronic message, you are deemed to have accepted and consented to this Policy. You may opt-out of receiving commercial electronic messages by using the unsubscribe mechanism included in the email.
If you are a client or prospective client of Coffin Law Office, you may opt out of and decline your acceptance of this Policy by delivering written notice of your intent to opt-out and decline the Policy to Coffin Law Office. If you opt-out and decline your acceptance of this Policy, Coffin Law Office may, at its sole discretion, end any client and solicitor relationship that may exist between You and Coffin Law Office or change the fee or quote to reflect the additional costs incurred by Coffin Law Office in delivering services using alternate terms, policies or service providers.
